@Kensai: Also take a look at https://www.red5audio.com/

I used to own their RV10 which is STILL only 150 GB pounds.

After I got the Rode I sold the Red5 on to my singer, who gave it to his son on his death last year. Great condenser vocal mic that can also do a bunch of other stuff.

Because it is also multi-pattern, its a lot more versatile than most mics in the price range. Also excellent build quality. AND they have a great return policy
if you try it and dont like it.

Hi

In a bedroom setup I've used a Studio Projects B1 Condenser and used a gate to deal with noise.

My 2 cents

If you are looking for a good cheap (condenser) budget mic, take a look at the BM-800, typically found on eBay and the likes. Around $30 AUD, so around 20 smackas USD.

Usually cheap mics are just that, cheap and nasty. But this one is actually quite good, have a look on Youtube, stacks of reviews and actual recordings using them.

I've been very happy with this Studio Projects B3. Very versatile, sounds great on vocals, micing amps and for instruments. Multipattern. About $160.

Hi. I am considering one of these for a live venue that needs a vocal mic. Sounds pretty close to the SM58?

[GRUMBLING MODE ON]

Maybe you could tell us it's about the Prodipe TT1 vs the SM57, in stead of linking to a YT video a lot of us can't understand?

[Apology mode on]
Sorry Cyrano. I didn't mean to confuse but I thought the video might be self explanatory. Clearly I should try and be be clearer in future.

For anyone interested gear4Music sell these at £32.99 BTW.

Not sure if this has been suggested but a secret weapon LDC I use on all kinds of sources is the MXL 2003a. No joke - hard to tell apart from my $2000+ Neumann TLM49.

I've got 4 of these workhorse mics and use them as overheads, vox, piano, cello, on and on... they punch WAY above their weight class imho.

As a side-note: These days there's been a heated debate in political Norway. The conservative Christian party (KrF) is in power to topple the government, and is argumenting against abortion -based on the idea of the unique value of each human being (that I find correct)
Experience however tells us that their position is the most inhuman position, but because KrF don't understand the bigger spiritual picture of human existence.
So, just another case of putting limited mental ideas before experience.

Why not stuff yer philosophical-political opinion right where it belongs - up yer ass.

I've heard Goode reviews about it too. And price is appropriate

Blue Yeti as for me the best option, AT2035 is also good choice

What are your thoughts and maybe own experience?

The key phrase SMALL HOME STUDIO

A local pro recording engineer did a demo where both instruments and vocals were recorded with iPad mics. yes the builtin mics .. by physically holding the ipad up to the singer's level.

Probably the iphone uses the same mics now (iphones get technology after the ipads do, mostly) so either one might do, but maybe iphone has more cancellation (& distortion) since it's meant to be held as a phone for the mic's use. So probably better to go with iPad for the test.

Total equipment cost: $0.00
